Dwell on Design returned to Los Angeles this year for another round of great design events and exhibitions, seems like it gets better and better every year! This year I explored the show to see both new finds and old finds, but always interesting new showcases. From ideas on landscaping to space-maximizing bathroom ideas from Geberit, here are some of my highlights from this year’s #DOD2015.

image

Love the colorful and graphic fabrics available from The Shade Store.

image

A highlight, and absolute favorite, the faucets and fittings from Franz Viegener – beautiful minimal streamlined design!

image

More from the Buenos Aires based company, Franz Viegener.

image

Beautiful hardware from Franz Viegener too.

For a second year in a row, I’ve had the opportunity to team up with Geberit. I’ve since come to know their products and have seem many installed in both commercial and residential use that look amazing. Pictured above, is the Geberit Monolith and Sigma50 Flush Plate. Both save space, operate quietly and conserve water. For more, visit them on Houzz and Pinterest.

image

Another show favorite, the beautiful cabinetry from Bauformat.

image

Cabinet colors come in an array of colors and finishes, from Bauformat.

image

Fun tile selections from Bedrosians.

image

A fun section featured at Dwell on Design was the Outdoor area filled with great ideas and sources for landscaping.

image

StepStone, Inc had these cool hexagon concrete pavers.

image

Loved seeing the modular home designs as were on display, just like the ones on display last year. This year’s were even more uniquely designed from an interiors standpoint.

image

Lacava has the classiest vanities.

Fun, colorful chairs from Bend Goods!

Looking forward to next year’s Dwell on Design – the show that keeps getting bigger & better! Thank you to Geberit for inviting me to provide show coverage!

I’ve been using Art.com as a source for specifying art for client projects and using on client concept boards to convey how art selections will fit into a room setting. I recently had the opportunity to experience a new app from Art.com: the SwitchArt app. A fun app that allows you to upload images (your pictures) to the app, select to be printed, & easily switch out with a magnetic backing for an ever changing art look.

 

“The SwitchArt app from Art.comSwitchArt is the simplest way to change out prints, often and easily, in the same frame. Watch a tutorial here to see how it works. The great thing about SwitchArt is if you want a new look, simply peel off the print and replace it with a new one in seconds. No hammer required. No need to buy a new frame.
The new Art.com SwitchArt App makes things even easier and allows you to bring your photo stream straight to your walls. Simply download the app, buy a pack, and begin uploading personal photos from their your camera roll, Instagram feed or Facebook page. Each pack includes a SwitchArt™ Magnetic Frame in the color and size of your choice, and a number of prints you select.”

Art.com’s line up of mobile apps for art selection and ordering.

  

  

One tool that is a great feature on Art.com is the ability to view different frames and mat features for art pieces. I use this for client project selections and screenshot the images for my concept boards. It’s such a great way to incorporate the right look into a room design – or helpful for the consumer trying to select the best frame option.

I was recently introduced to the online source of Fiber and Water: a collection of accessories, including wall art and pillows, printed on burlap. Hand-crafted in Maine, with many patterns having a nautical theme, I was instantly attracted given my beach and boating upbringing on the Southern California coast. So much so, I encouraged Phoebe of Fiber and Water to reach out to our local boutiques, especially those of my hometown of Newport Beach and Balboa Island. Here are some of my favorite finds!

Love this coral pillow in teal.

The Reef Knot: Remiscent of my boating days.

 

A classic sailboat.

 

A collection of map prints are available in both pillows and wall art.

Of course, I had to find my home state.

Vintage prints are also available.

 

Monograms and custom prints make for great gifts.

 

For the dog lovers: cute pug prints.

 

 

Last but not least: I’m loving all the pattern prints!

A fun orange chevron.

Continuing with puncy colors is a custom rounded banquette in her breakfast nook complemented by an Eero Saarinen table.

Her high ceiling living room with graphics and a black and white theme is remiscent of an airy New York loft, which she wanted the room to have a feel for.

To add visual interest to the living room, she added moulding and brick veneer, then had it white washed to look more aged!

Her dark mirrored bar includes a black laquered ceiling.

The dining room table and chairs are vintage complemented by a contemporary light fixture.
